政府停摆仍在继续,特朗普金融去监管计划难推进

近日,美国政府陷入停摆状态,时间之长创下了现代历史之最。

而媒体认为,这甚至可能会让特朗普总统的金融去监管化行动“雪上加霜”。

此前,特朗普总统曾制定了相关计划,希望放宽银行监管、改变公司治理模式并推动金融产业创新。许多业界高管都寄希望能够从今年起受益于上述新政,然而随着政府停摆,一切都变得不确定起来。

据路透社报道,由于民主党控制众议院,而即将举行的2020年总统大选预计会减少立法行动,业界游说者担心如果政府关门持续下去,留给白宫金融新政的时间恐怕就不多了。

比如今年5月,美国国会曾批准了一份立法修改,有望解除对银行业的部分限制。然而,目前该修订法案仍有几处条例还处在公众意见咨询环节,而根据联邦法律规定,不能加速或者直接跳过这个环节。而这些立法修改意见已经遭到了消费者群体的大量反对,如果不能合理处理这些问题,相关金融服务公司很可能会因此面临诉讼。

据悉,目前美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)已经停止了规则制定工作,而此前可能通过的有关洲际交易所接受数字货币期货交易的事宜也陷入停滞。而美国证券交易委员会(SEC)的发言人也表示,目前该机构已经处于应急状态,所有IPO事宜都被推迟,经纪机构也无法获得相关合规指导。

 

 

The government shutdown, which is now the longest in modern history, is hurting President Donald Trump’s deregulation plans in the financial services industry.

According to a report in Reuters, with the Democrats controlling the House of Representatives and the upcoming 2020 presidential election expected to blunt any legislation, industry lobbyists are concerned that if the shutdown continues, there will be little time for the White House’s new rules to go into effect.

President Trump has laid out plans to ease the rules on banks, transform corporate governance and drive financial innovations, which led many executives in the industry to start to reap the benefits this year. But with the partial government shutdown, they aren’t so sure.

As Reuters noted, one area that is concerning executives is the rules that are currently being drafted by regulators, which will put into place the changes Congress passed in May to lift the restrictions on banks. Republican lawmakers had expected the changes would almost be complete, but several have not reached the public comment stage, a phase that is required under federal law and can’t be easily fast-tracked. The changes face a lot of opposition from consumer groups, and anything that hurts the ability for them to be implemented could result in financial services companies being exposed to litigation.

Take the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) as one example. It was scheduled to sign off on rules that would enable Intercontinental Exchange to start trading digital currency futures shortly, but with the government shutdown, that timeline is now unrealistic, a person familiar with the CFTC’s plan told Reuters. And the Securities and Exchange Commission has no staff to approve paperwork, which means initial public offerings (IPOs) are getting delayed, and brokers can’t get guidance on whether some trades are compliant with SEC rules, Marlon Paz, a lawyer and advisor to financial firms, told Reuters. “I fear there is little oversight in tumultuous times,” he said.

Reuters reported that a CFTC spokeswoman confirmed the agency has stopped rule-writing, while an SEC spokesman said the Commission was staffing emergency functions.
